Replacement of the evaporator and regassing the system is more costly than buying a replacement freezer.seriously not worth the hassle.(undercounter freezer about £120,)

I have a Sears cold spot chest freezer 198715610 that freezes on the top of the freezer, but the bottom melts everything. What could be causing this problem?

If you are low on refrigerant, the gas will flash on the top part of the evaporator and not throughout the unit. So the top part will be nice and cold and the bottom part will be no where near the top temps. Check for a leak, fix it and then refill unit to specs taking care that the exact amount of refrigerant called for is used.

Our under the counter freezer will not cool below 28 degrees. What are your thoughts?


Try doing a defrost. If the freezer works after defrost, then it was the defrost system. If the freezer has auto defrost (evaporator comprising thermostat, timer, fan and heater), then the problem may restart after few days. In that case the problem is one of the parts comprised in the evaporator.

If the freezer does not cool after defrost, then temperature control (depending on model) may be responsible. Compressor and gas leak usually result in no cooling at all.

Freezer doesn't freeze anymore. Runs like a

On a chest freezer , the coils are located inside the walls of the freezer . The heat normally felt on the outside is the condensor coils inside the wall. The coldness felt on the inside is from the evaporator coils also inside the freezer wall .If the inside of the freezer has over 1/2 inch of frost , then defrosting may work . If NO frost on the inside , possible leak in the coils which are not accessable . Only solution is to replace the freezer . Anyone can buy refrigerant 134a which is what your freezer uses .

Frigidaire stand up frost proof w/ temp alarm / 98' model. Compressor running, no power problem. Removed interior panel and found that evaporator coils not getting cool. When switch for alarm is pushed on...

If your compressor is running with no freon, It should be very hot. Check if it is. And if it is and the freon has leaked out. Then you must find the leak in the system before you add more freon. If you dont this will be an ongoing problem. The freon will leak out after any length of time. This is a very hard task to find the leak, and you will be money ahead to buy another if you dont find the leak than to re charge every year or so.

Hoshizaki Flaker Gear Motor Part

I expereinced the same problem and the only solution I could come up with was to have the gear fabricated. I made a few fro backup. I haven't used any in the two years since i fixed mine. I can sell you a replacement gear or you can send me the gear box and I will install the new gear for you. This same gear box is used in a number of Hoshizaki flakers. Typically symptoms are noisy gear box and jerky auger, or motor spinning but no Auger rotation. Cause is typically scaling/ calcium build up in the evaporator tube. The extra torque stips the gear.

Chest Freezer not cooling

Please don't rate this solution, as anything but FixYa brings my rating down, but here's what you've got:
You have a refrigerant leak (commonly referred to a Freon, but these days usually R134A refrigerant). Some refrigerant has leaked, so you are still getting some cooling, but there is not enough refrigerant left to cool throughout the entire evaporator coils. This is NOT a repairable condition, as the coils are foamed in place and not accessable for leak repair. If this unit is under 5 years old (typical sealed system warranty) the manufacturer will most likely replace your freezer with a new one. If over 5 years, you are out of luck. Buy a replacement freezer.
